Graphics drivers for Vista

In case you're an early riser.

What with Crysis and even Halo 2 still a few months away, we're probably only talking to people with more money than sense (in which case, have I mentioned that that's a smashing blouse you have on?), but on the off chance you were there, man, and need some graphics card drivers for your brand, spanking new copy of Windows Vista, ATI and NVIDIA have popped up to help.

ATI has a whole section of its website cordoned off to greet you, Radeon lovers, complete with a picture of a man relaxing on a chair on a cloudy mountain. For some reason. But you can bypass all that, should you wish, and use their online driver utility to make it clear what sort you're after - in either 32-bit or 64-bit categories.

NVIDIA also offers its latest ForceWare drivers (100.54 if you're bothered) in 32-bit and 64-bit flavours. Sadly though, as you see, it's possible to directly link the pages where you can get them, which ultimately makes for a rather boring paragraph, devoid of preamble. I suppose I could point out that they're still considered "beta", and that release notes are available in PDF form.

And if you fancy getting in on all this Vista tomfoolery, we're not going to stop you. Quite the opposite, in fact, seeing as we're giving away five copies of the Ultimate edition at the moment.
